CHAPEL HILL, N.C., July 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Market research groups within the biopharmaceutical industry rely extensively on vendors for primary and secondary research to support their internal clients. One of the vendor management strategies that helps biopharma market research groups provide support and value is the use of exclusive vendor partnerships.

Pharmaceutical organizations that contract with exclusive vendors cite "cost efficiency" as a primary objective for using this contracting model, according to a new research study from Best Practices, LLC. Nearly two-thirds of the participants in the study cited cost, greater work efficiency and faster turnaround times as their primary goals for using exclusive market research vendors.

The study, Market Research Vendor Excellence: Exclusive Vendor Management, examines vendor management strategies and, in particular, evaluates the use of exclusive vendor partnerships. In addition to providing key vendor benchmarks around types of research conducted, the study presents the benefits, problems and management approaches for exclusive vendor partnerships.

Key topics addressed in this study are:

Role of Exclusive Market Research Vendors

Managing Exclusive Vendor Relationships

Goals and Evaluation of Exclusive Market Research Vendors

Return on Investment for Exclusive Market Research Vendors

Lessons Learned with Exclusive Market Research Vendors
